Like an assassination, or capture point objective? For EPICs, you should probably go for a multy point objective, or a single objective that can only be acomplished by doing two or three specific things. Example: Say there is an experimental weapon/vehicle crashed in the middle of the battlefield, both sides aim at capturing it, but must first set up a perimeter then attempt to repair it within a certain number of turns.

As said before, yeah bigger is WAY better. You have much more options when it comes to building, gameplay, and the battle as a whole. definitely must try an EPIC soon, but i'm pretty comfortable with Large ones for now :D
When cities burn and armies turn to flee in diseray
The weak ones cry "tis best to fly and fight another day!"
But true heroes know deep in their marrow when they die and fall,
"Tis better to have faught and lost, than to have never faught at all!"

I reserve my devious strategies for Axis and Allies and Star Wars Minis. I prefer not to get too invested in such paltry things as victory in Brikwars, and instead focus my attentions on achieving as much general destruction and hilarity as humanly possible.


ah but if you die in the corridors of indestrucable concreate you can't move on to the coredors of highly exoplosive stuff!


:roll: Tahthing, you have missed the point of brikwars (I don't know if anyone said this before). you don't get past the impurvious halls, you start out in the halls of explody things. the rules acctually state that brikwars and dignity are natuarlly conflicting forces.

It's alright. It seems like there has been nothing but necros lately, I think Ray-Stubby is making new accounts every day and building an army of undead threads to take over the forums, which would be pointless, considering he's already in charge.

it's looking that way, except nobody at all seems to like 3v3 (go figure, the games about large amounts of carnage).

I don't know why I voted for platoon-size, since my battle reports so far has been 3v1, 3v3v3v4 and 3v5. Darn.

well if i could id have to change my vote from big to epic. the brik fleet engagement on the 30th will have me throwing my fleet against rocs in a massive debri fest orgy of destruction and it will involve 117+ legomen on my side alone. though a modified hp system will be used so were not bashing our head in trying to destroy eachothers ships
